S&P Capital IQ to focus on municipal bond ETFs in next ETF Analyst Hour


S&P Capital IQ will focus its next ETF Analyst Hour webinar on “How to seek potential opportunity in the current muni bond environment with ETFs”.

Investors now find themselves in a rising rate environment for the first time in years, leaving many wondering if potential opportunities remain in the bond universe, and if so, where they might be found.
Though certainly not immune from the volatility that has shaken the markets in recent weeks, municipal bonds are emerging as one area that might be worthy of investor consideration.
Taking place on 17 July 2013, at 11:00am EDT, the webinar will feature guest speaker JR Rieger (pictured), vice president, fixed income indices at S&P Dow Jones Indices, and Todd Rosenbluth, S&P Capital IQ’s director of ETF and mutual fund research.
Rieger will provide an overview of the current environment for municipal bonds, including supply and demand trends, return performance and the impact that recent news has had on the space.
Rosenbluth will then lead a discussion on municipal bond ETFs, taking a close look at recent performance trends, how muni ETFs differ from active muni mutual funds, and what returns and spreads can tell investors about where potential opportunities might be found.
S&P Capital IQ recently began providing reports and rankings on approximately 180 fixed income ETFs, including many from the municipal bond space, to subscribers of S&P Capital IQ’s MarketScope Advisor platform.
